Despite differing opinions that dismiss its value, a pair extends an opportunity to a one-eyed kitten with a crooked tooth.
A few years ago, a feral cat appeared on the doorstep of a family and decided to make it their home.
Alex, the owner of the house, shared: “We immediately bonded, so she stayed forever. A few weeks later, I realized that she was pregnant.
Mama Pop gave birth to four beautiful kittens, and the littlest one is called Peanut because it’s the smallest. “I quickly realized she couldn’t breastfeed like everyone else, so I gave her a bottle until she was old enough to eat wet food,” says Alex.
Plop is so tiny, only half the size of his siblings. He barely weighed enough for them to really know his weight for a long time at the vet. It’s not even registered!
Peanut couldn’t see until one day her good eye cleared and opened. She was born with only one eye and part of her nose missing but that didn’t slow her down.
She has defects on one side of her body, specifically her eyes and nose. Fortunately, she is completely healthy,” Alex said. As she got older, her crooked teeth became more prominent. It just adds cuteness to the sweet one-eyed cat.
“She has the cutest personality out of all the cats I’ve ever seen. She would come looking for me around the house and lead me to her food bowl to be petted.
Alex said, “She sat on her human father’s shoulder every night, around dinner time, watching me cook and get some food. She really was my best friend.”
She is forever a kitten, but what she lacks in size, she makes up for in character. Recently, Plop has a new sister named Phoebe, and they immediately became close friends. At six months old, Phoebe was older than Plop, but the two were completely inseparable.
I remember nearly a dozen people telling me that it was not worth it to keep Plop alive or see what she became,” Alex said. “A little compassion helps a lot because giving Plop a chance, I have seen one of the greatest blessings of my life today.”
It’s important to remember that our society benefits greatly when individuals exhibit kindness and compassion towards animals and demonstrate empathy and understanding towards their needs. Each living being has inherent value, and by embracing and accepting them, we can create a more compassionate and inclusive world.
Cultivating empathy and adopting a more compassionate lifestyle can have transformative effects on both individuals and society as a whole. By actively engaging with and accepting the diverse experiences and perspectives of others, we can foster a more harmonious and interconnected world.
